Blue Bomber Report Record: 7–11–0

Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

When it doesn't matter

Curious as to how quarterback Alex Brink, who was just 7-of-16 for 66 yards at the half in Friday's loss, finished up with impressive throwing totals (25-of-39 for 311 yards) at the end of the game?

He caught fire when the score was well in hand for Montreal, that's how.

When Jamel Richardson hauled in his second TD pass of the evening, that made the score 29-10 Montreal with seven minutes left to play in the game. Brink, who led the Bombers offence to three straight two-and-outs in the third quarter, lit it up right after the Richardson score, going 12-of-16 for 175 yards passing and putting up two more Winnipeg majors as the fans stormed to the exits.

As they say, too little, too late for the Bombers.
